Wait A Minute - Now, Is That A Muslima Or A Whore?


Whores are starting to dress like Muslim women in Kenya. What happens when you can't tell the difference between the two?

Question: What's the quickest way to get Muslim women to stop wearing extremely conservative clothing?

Answer: Get prostitutes to start dressing like them.

In Mombasa, Kenya, the coastal city's "twilight ladies" have ditched their skimpy "uniforms" for the much more conservative buibui—a billowing, ankle-length gown with head covering that Muslim women in the region wear. Sex workers say it lets them hide their identity, avoid arrest, and look respectable.

Unsurprisingly, Muslim women who cover themselves head to toe with the buibui aren't exactly happy with this fashion makeover. One woman says:

I feel so embarrassed that sometimes I contemplate removing my buibui and throwing it away. The buibui has lost its respect.

In addition to the risk of being mistaken for a prostitute, there is another reason why this woman may want to reconsider covering herself head to toe: Conservative Muslim dress codes may be bad for women's health.

I'm trying to figure out, do I want to go to Lebanon, or not? This is a very, very tough decision.

Those are typical Lebanese Christian girls. They have always been the absolute majority in their lovely country.....until Arafatass and his boys invaded (1975) and invited every Muzzie asshole to join them in the destruction of the most beautiful country in the region.

Don't buy a airline ticket yet...save you money, those girls and every other Christian in the region will be driven out in a matter of months.

Yep, and then they'll all come here and open restaurants. Woo hoo!

No, actually, there will be much misery.

Very sad.
